 Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches New Dosimetry Monitoring Service

March 7, 2019 — A new dosimetry monitoring service from Thermo Fisher Scientific enables medical and imaging facilities, dental offices, veterinary clinics, nuclear power plants, laboratories and other facilities with radiation safety requirements to streamline management of their safety programs.

Thermo Scientific Dosimetry Services are designed to enable facility operators to monitor and track individual employee accumulated radiation dose with both precision and accuracy. Facilities can now deploy the whole-body Thermo Scientific Harshaw thermoluminescence dosimeter (TLD), which is designed to accurately and reliably measure gamma, beta and neutron doses. Facility operators can use Thermo Scientific Dosimetry Services to deliver dosimeters, read and store cumulative data, and produce recurrent dose reports. Harshaw TLDs are durable and easy to wear in a ring, wristband or headband, and are designed to enable flexible extremity monitoring depending on the user’s need.

Thermo Scientific Dosimetry Services are provided using a National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) accredited lab.
